I usually don't post about the Shopbop sale because I don't find the retailer size-inclusive, the pricepoint of most items are above what I find most Wardrobe Oxygen customers are comfortable with, and they seem to have a sale every other week. But perusing the items this morning for another post, I realized that the denim makes the Shopbop sale worth it.
Denim Makes the Shopbop Sale Worth It
While Shopbop seems to cater to the single-digit sized millennial with a good amount of discretionary funds, their denim options are well-curated to on-trend and classically chic brands and styles and they have a good range of prices. Sure, you'll find MOTHER, FRAME, and L'AGENCE which are on the higher end of price (why do all the expensive brands have their names in all caps?) but Shopbop also carries denim brands like Good American, Levi's, and DL1961 and they are currently part of the Shopbop sale. (Also included is AGOLDE which is a very popular brand for fit but closer to MOTHER prices, which you likely could tell since the brand is in all caps.)
Not only that, Shopbop carries denim styles up to size 38 waist and clothing sizes up to 28, or 3XL. For sure, selection diminishes as we go up the size range, but this sale offers 15% off purchases of $200+, 20% off purchases $500+ and 25% off purchases $800+ and when shopping for jeans, it's wise to order more than one size, which can easily put you into one of these savings categories. And these are brands and styles selling at department stores and denim retailers for full price.
Shopbop has free shipping and very easy returns (within 30 days and free within 15 days). While this sale has already been going on for a bit, jeans still seem to have good selection, especially in the larger sizes. I think it's worth checking out the Shopbop sale for denim.

Why I Keep Writing about Denim
Denim is as American as apple pie and baseball, and I say that knowing that denim likely originated from Genoa, Italy, and the word “jeans” is likely from the French word for Genoa (Gênes). Whether you are 21 or 81, there is a good chance you have a pair of jeans in your closet and a need/want for a great pair for many occasions.
As we get older, our bodies change, and our lifestyles change, it becomes more difficult to shop for clothing. And the top three items that Wardrobe Oxygen readers have shared over the years they struggle with most are bras, swimwear, and jeans.
Whether it is for protecting your legs as you slide under your car to change your oil, or to pair with a silk camisole and blazer for a night out, jeans are versatile, useful, and a style classic. And if I can help you find a pair that fits, is comfortable, and you enjoy wearing, I feel that this blog has done its job.
And if you can find such jeans on sale, all the better! So if you're on the hunt for denim this season, it may make the Shopbop sale worth it to check out!
